SCOTLAND international James Morrison has admitted he would be interested in joining Celtic.
Brendan Rodgers made a season-long loan move for the out-of-favour West Brom star on the final day of last month’s transfer window.
The Hoops boss wanted to add the 30-year-old midfielder to his new-look squad as his sixth signing behind Moussa Dembele, Kolo Toure, Scott Sinclair, Dorus de Vries and Cristian Gamboa.
Morrison said: “It was just an enquiry, that was all. But the club said no.
“With my position at the minute, I would definitely have considered it. But it didn’t happen, so I am just looking forward to trying to get back into the team.”
The 41-times capped anchorman has played just 26 minutes for the Hawthorns outfit this season and could be ready to move in January – which may interest the Scottish champions.
He added: “My situation is I’m trying to get into the team. I’ll keep working hard and wait for my chance.
“January is a long time away, but I would have to seriously consider my position at the club if I am not playing. I will have to look at it.”
Whether Morrison would remain on Celtic’s interest come January is another matter altogether, with some supporters hoping that Brendan Rodgers will have a look at Kris Commons who they regard as probably a better option and he’s already at the club!
Commons has become the forgotten man in the Rodgers Revolution at Celtic. He underwent surgery at the end of last season so missed out on pre-season training and the crucial European qualifiers.
Although back in training Rodgers reported in his last update on the playmaker that he was a long way off the pace fitness wise from being ready for the first team. Commons has since regained fitness and is waiting, hoping he can get a look in again at as he chases a 100 goals scored target for Celtic.
In January in a Commons or Morrison debate, it would be interesting to see which player would prevail.
